Veneers are a popular way patients can achieve a transformation from broken, chipped, slightly crooked or stained teeth. They are also used in some cases to fill small gaps/spaces between patient’s teeth to improve the appearance of their overall smile.
They are a thin ceramic custom made shell that is made by a skilled dental technician and permanently bonded directly to the tooth, being made from porcelain they are strong and have a shiny appearance that look and feel natural. The surface of the porcelain veneer will not stain as it is made of ceramic therefore will keep a high quality appearance for years to come.
The preparation to your natural tooth for a porcelain veneer is minimal with only a fraction of the tooth surface being reshaped for the veneer to be made. Many patients choose to have veneers for the aesthetics of their smile, so it is common for someone to get all six or twelve front teeth done, however this does not mean they cannot be placed as a single veneer to improve the appearance of a particular problem with a seamless disguise next to your natural teeth.
